How to compile an application is very easy to build by typing make in the port directory. Makefile automatically download the source code of applications, to patch it and compile it. Very simple is not it? by simply typing make install you can install the application in its entirety.To install an application from the ports, the required ports are up to date.

mengginstall application so that when it does not happen in broken links or not

found its source applications that we need.

How to keep these ports up to date?

very easy ..

make sure you are logged in as root on your server.

do little changes in your make.conf for when to download

source applications take from the nearest source.

indofreebsd # pico / etc / make.conf

#----- Began ------- #

# Mirrors
#---- Completed ------ #

then save

now let it install cvsup

indofreebsd # cd / usr / ports

indofreebsd # make search name = cvsup-without-gui
Port: cvsup-without-gui-16.1h_2
Path: / usr / ports / net / cvsup-without-gui

now the last step our goal is to update the ports collection

The ports collection for truly serve targeted date.

The first thing we should do is copying the example file-supfile port
indofreebsd # locate ports-supfile
/ Usr / share / examples / cvsup / ports-supfile
/ Usr / src / share / examples / cvsup / ports-supfile

indofreebsd #

indofreebsd # cp / usr / share / examples / cvsup / ports-supfile.

indofreebsd # pico ports-supfile

change the * default host = a * default host =

then save

let's start the update ports

indofreebsd # cvsup-g-L 2 ports-supfile
